  • We need it

    Otherwise, animals like Kim Kardashian can get successful. Also, if being a slut is considered acceptable, many young girls will think it's OK to lower themselves to the position of sex object. If women think that their bodies are the most valuable part of their existence, then half of our population is relegated to the position of basically a flashlight. If we want to progress as a species, we need to stop being disgusting sluts.

  • Its the right thing to do

    Women who do such things should be shamed upon for they can learn to have morals. Its the 21st century, we should be trying to make society better and not worse. If people don't stand up against immoral actions then it will spread because young women will think its acceptable.

  • Yes it is.

    We are animals, and sex isn't just one body part enveloping another. It is a profound act that should carry some psychological weight. Anyone who has sex with someone they wouldn't be willing to have children with is behaving in a way that makes light of one of life's most sacred acts. It is understandable that such behavior would be discouraged.

  • But like biology though.

    The reason "sleeping around" is different for guys and girls is because biologically, it is different. Women have a limited number of eggs in their bodies, so they must learn to save them and identify ideal mates to use them on. Men have a concievably unlimited number of sperm cells, so their job is to be recognized as an ideal mate by the most people, and doing so would qualify them as the IDEALest mate of them all. However, if a woman were to sleep with many guys, that means that she is incapable of perceiving which ones are good or bad, and is thusly "shamed" for this inability.

  • Promiscuity is immoral

    Sleeping around helps spread diseases (like STD and aids) , break up relationships, leads to sex addictions and reduces self worth. As well as causing unwanted pregnancies which could lead to abortion. Your just turning yourself in to a sex object to be used and discarded, this should be discouraged as much as possible.

  • Yes it is.

    I believe it is immoral to go around screwing everything with a pulse whether you are a guy or girl and it is a practice that is rightly considered shameful. Sex is sacred and is a sign of ultimate love and loses all meaning when you do it with everybody you know.

  • So that's what we're calling calls for basic decency these days?

    Apparently at some point in recent history, the social justice warriors of the Internet decided that being called out as being tacky or gross when trying to be social was "slut shaming." Sorry, but not. Being criticized in a way that you don't appreciate isn't shaming of any sort. It's just an opinion, and if you don't care for it, then don't lend it validity by calling it a special name.

  • Kindly grow up.

    Why do people shame? The answer is obvious. The thing they are shaming is intrinsically shameful. Sex is designed to be between a man and a woman in the context of marriage. It has no meaning outside of that context. Also, promiscuity leads to unplanned pregnancies, which are either aborted(murder) or carried through, leading to a broken, one-parent household. Nobody wins.

  • Shame keeps us from belittling ourselves

    It should apply to both men and women. Whoring yourself out like a merry-go-round is not something to celebrate or embrace as some form of empowerment. It doesn't have anything to do with religion. People should have some dignity if they want respect. No one is entitled to respect unless they act accordingly.

  • Feminism turned into a lack of decency these days

    Feminism in the 20th century was great, fantastic. Now that women have got every right they could -which is awesome!- most of them still fel the need to keep on protesting against inexistent opression.
    I have never seen a man on the street showing off his penis or ass, but I see women every day with a really small skirt or showing off her boobs like if everyone wanted to look at them. If they're at home and they feel comfortable that way, that's awesome! As a woman I think bras aren't comfortable, but I respecto myself and wear a decent t-shirt and decent pants!

  • Of course not!

    How can it be a good thing to make women feel bad about something they enjoy? Let them be, worry about yourself. What does it matter to YOU if a woman has a lot of sex? There's no logic. Who does it hurt if a woman is promiscuous? Why would equality be so bad?

  • It's none of your business!

    Who a woman sleeps with is none of your business. How many people a woman sleeps with is none of your business. Whether her sexual activities with someone was for love or simply for pleasure is none of your business. So you have no right in calling her a slut or shaming her for her decisions. Her sex life does not affect you in any way. Not to mention slut shaming could lead to suicide, depression, it could cause woman and young girls to have low self esteem, and could ruin her life.

  • Its not your business!

    Who a woman sleeps with is none of your business. How many people she sleeps with is none of your business. Whether it had anything to do with love or just simply pleasure is none of your business. So what gives you the right to call her a slut for something that doesn't affect you in any way? Not to mention slut shaming could lead to suicide, it could cause girls to have low self esteem, and overall make a woman's life a living hell. So no slut shaming is not a good thing its a terrible thing that needs to end.

  • How can it be?

    This is not a question that can be answered with a simple yes or a no. Slut-shaming is not right as it is a clear way of disrespecting women's choices. If a women wishes to be a particular way, we have no right whatsoever to belittle her and disrespect her self-made decisions. That said, there is a part of our society, both younger and older generations, who are badly affected by certain acts or images of those people. In the long term, they might make decisions they'll come to regret. So, maintenance of proper conscience is a must. At the end of it all, if we can respect ourselves and our decisions, we'll stop shaming others. Dignity in life is the key to self-discipline. Women who have chosen such a lifestyle have chosen it by choice. We should not question their dignity but accept them as they are. It's our own mentality that requires moralising.

  • Slut shaming is pointless

    It is so because as one or many others may have stated it doesn't stop anything from happening it only hurts peoples feelings in doing so. Sex is a natural thing. Animals do it humans do it. It is a part of existence. Just because one likes to have sex they should not be put down into a category which suggests they are not worth as much as someone who doesn't or who values sex differently. Slut shaming seems to just be a revolting excuse to make someone feel bad about themselves and it is. Why is it that guys are pretty much praised for such but when a woman does so she is degraded. In my opinion slut shaming is just another way to make someone feel less of an equal. We were born to frig and have babies. Sleeping around doesn't promote std's not using protection promotes std's. And sleeping around doesn't break up families. It is the act of breaking a commitment that does so.

  • No, slut shaming is horrible.

    Slut shaming is not something that should be going on in modern times at all. Very few people would shame a boy for the same behavior that would supposedly bring so much shame onto a girl. It's a ridiculous double standard and there is no valid reason for it. There is nothing wrong with having sex if it's safe.

  • Slut Shaming Is Sexist

    It makes women feel that they must fit in with societies beliefs of what they can and can not do. Because of the double standard of slut shaming primarily being inflicted on women, it is sexist. There is no reason in this day and age to limit how sexual someone else is- you can decide for yourself how sexual YOU want to be!

  • Shaming is useless

    What could possibly be good about foisting shame on someone because they don't meet some arbitrary moral standards? Condemning other lifestyles has always been risky business because it creates a greater separation among people, instead of bringing them together. Shaming is hurtful, arrogant, and unacceptable adult behavior. Don't do it.

  • It doesn't work

    You can slut shame as much as you want, and guess what- problem not solved. It didn't work on males, you think females are going to not sleep around? Not dress how they want? Not go wild? Hook up ect ect ?. Nope, they're still doing it. Just like men, except men don't hide it. Think about that.
    Instead, society should try to find an alternative measure: So WHAT DOES SOCIETY REALLY WANT? In other words, what's the purpose of slut shaming? To restrict females from access and limit their freedom? Is it really to teach females the consequences of making men horny? To have some self respect? Because if that's the case, slut shaming has only increased that threshold. Slut shaming decreases a women's self esteem when she is raped, after having sex (even if it was only her second time), slut shaming suppresses sexual desires and needs. Men get sexually frustrated- YOU THINK WOMEN CANT?! "I'm waiting till marriage because I'm not a slut" "we had sex but now I feel like a slut" WHY BECAUSE YOU HAD SEX? Why are we shaming sex? Slut shaming only does more harm than good. Instead Society should teach men and women self awareness, healthy sexual habits, fact based sex ED, and that SEX IS NOT ALL CASUAL AND FUN- you can get pregnant!!! These are some of the most important issues that society should really be stressing on, not condemning women- but providing them more knowledge, more wisdom, more REAL LIFE IMPLICATIONS. Not "if you have casual sex then your a whore!"

  • Slut shaming's illusion

    Slut shaming gives us the illusion that it is doing the best it can to protect women from bad people by restricting the way they act and dress. It also gives the illusion that society is right in its assumption that a women's sex life is their business to comment on and that how sexually active a women is is directly linked to how provocatively they dress and how flirtatiously they speak. It also gives the illusion that it makes society a better place to live in by posing standards for how we act and dress. Yet if slut shaming was meant for such a thing, why does it only apply to the 50% that make up the population of society - women?
    This is neither fair to women or men. In the process of slut shaming, women become oppressed by society in how they are able to express themselves without an onslaught of critism by society, with their bodies becoming vulgar monstrosities that are to be kept to themselves. The whole point of feminism isn't to bow down to the objections of a patriarchy that thrives off women's insecurities - it's for suppressed women to live for themselves and by their own standards without feeling the need to submit to others. On the other hand, slut shaming is dangerous to some men who go through the world belieiving that they can get away with being promiscuous and are even praised for it due to their advantageous gender. This pointless double standard confuses many, especially as slut shaming is particularly used to demean women and keep them in their place. Some may argue that slut shaming is needed to protect women from attracting perverse sexual abusers by restricting how provocatively they act. These people say that this will prevent women from getting sexually abused without realising that they are pinning the blame on the victim for allowing this to happen. The whole point of sexual abuse is that the victim expresses no willingness to engage in any sexual activity and is forced into it by the perpetrator of the crime. It is thus a dangerous mindset to have in thinking that women have to take responsibility for the perversity of another human being and face the consequences of an decision that they had no part in making. It is also dangerous for women to go through life thinking that dressing and acting in a discreet way (so not being a slut by society's standards) will aid them in not getting sexually abused, even though this is all down to a repellant perpetrator with no disregard for rights concerning sex as oppose to what we wear.
    I hope that I have convinced you that slut shaming is a dangerous thing we have in society and that it is a feminist issue for us to correct.
